Antec 900 radiator question

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am mounting my radiator on the back of the case with a RadBox and I was thinking.. since I have that 120mm fan as exhaust do you guys think it would be good to make the radiator fans exhaust also? Or do the radiator fans have to point towards the case? Or do you guys think that I do not need the cases's exhaust fan at all? I have seen different ways to do it, can anyone help me here?

Make them pull away from case because the front pusher fans will cause negative air space.

PS i took my back exhaust case fan off and mounted it on the other side of radiator for a puller here ill show you i have the same case if you look i have no exhaust in case now and i used air diverters to stop hot air from going in rad

Make them push the air away from the case. You don't want warm air flowing in the direction of your intake fans on your case. That just recirculates all your warm exhaust air!

Hot air flow is not good when you go water you already lose your cooling on components around the old fans so now that there not there you want the coolest air in you case. rads blow hot air wouldn't be good in the front

well if you are mounting your rad in/on your case I dont see any way besides cutting intake holes and redirect the air in from the side of your case to your rad fans. make a housing for them to keep the hot case air out of your rad fans. Im going external so I never really thought about the case heat going through your rad...thats bad.

Indeed it took me 1-1/2 hour to come up with a good layout
